Hands down the best traditional Greek taverna style restaurant in Greektown. Excellent food always with professional service by Greeks. Love the ambiance by day - especially when seated on patio or near the windows. Good at night too - though better when more lively (unfortunately, the capacity restrictions are in place). My only criticism was the last time we dined, the overhead lights were a too bright and harsh for a dinner service. My view is you lower the overheads and add a candle to each table. If you haven't been, go without delay and try the mixed dip platter, the flaming saganaki, any of the grilled fish/seafood or any of the souvlakis - you will enjoy!

Excellent experience. Our reservation was delayed slightly due to a a party before us being slow to leave after paying their bills. The staff and owner kept us updated and did everything they could to make us comfortable while we waited. Food and service were both outstanding!

I’ve been going to the pantheon for 18 years now and it has always given me the best experience. By far the most cozy environment with authentic tasteful food.

Will be returning for as long as I can. Thank you Pantheon

For me Pantheon is the best Greek restaurant in the Danforth area,
Service is always fast and I love the new decor.
This time around the chicken souvlaki and the sea bream were just a tiny bit overcooked, which doesn’t happen often at Pantheon.
However the spanakopita was the best I had for a long time.
We also had the dips, octopus, Gigantes, chicken soup, salmon and mixed grill, which were all excellent..

tried to order a combination of different dishes and our server was really rude about it and tried to school me because i was saying the wrong terms. that really changed the tone of the rest of our lunch. I ended up getting the Calamari, and it was really rubbery, but I was too afraid to say anything given my experience ordering food.

Food was good. The service was good by the waiters but the owner or the house was incredibly unfriendly and a bit rude. Or standoffish. We felt rushed when we got there but dinner came out quickly which we wanted because we had to leave soon. We were cramped in a corner so the table wasn't very comfortable. It's okay, I would go again but not anytime soon. Just didn't get the overall great experience as the reviews had suggested. The wine that the host suggested was very good.

Everything at Pantheon was terrific! Food was terrific and flavourful, as expected for a greek place. It was also quite affordable! For $45 or so, you get 3 spanakopita, 1 huge sausage, 2 octopus tentacles, 4 squid/calamari bodies, and potatoes. I think they gave us more than the menu said, so that's just terrific!

Ambiance was lovely, white interior with nicely dressed tables. Very greek with candles as well. Not too loud but not quiet, all the patrons were talking to each other about what they ordered -- honestly an amazing experience.

Finally, the servers were the best I've ever had. Attentive, kind, and gave us a free dessert!

Probably the best restaurant I've been to in 2021. Absolutely go if you've read this review!

One of the best places for Greek on the Danforth. We ordered the shrimp skewer and chicken souvlaki. Food was cooked to perfection and the chicken was juicy and moist.

Waiters were friendly and attentive

Definitely recommend to friends and family.

This was our second time at Pantheon and it was great. The first time it wasn’t that great: we were a party of two and we were given a tiny table; food pretty much all came at once, but the service was good. Very friendly waiter.
But this time it was great, we were given a bigger table, food came at the right pace, and it was a nice touch having desert on the house. Service nailed it again this time.

The staff was very nice. We opted for indoor dining due to heat and weather. We were told all tables would be 6 feet apart which was NOT the case. The people sitting behind us on either side were so close we could have bumped heads from our seats. Before we left they added a third chair beside us to a table meant for two. I could have bumped the lady sitting there with my elbow from my seat! During covid I would have expected better seating for inside patrons.

We had a wonderful experience, when we arrived we had requested a table outside if possible. We were shown a table inside and given the opportunity to take that, we declined and they moved the table outside to the patio, which was fantastic and unexpected.
We had very prompt, attentive and friendly service. Being a Saturday night it was quiet busy, but we never felt left or overlooked.
The food was delicious, we had a small dips and the hot plate for two. Could not fault the experience and would absolutely return!

Terrible experience. I came here for my partners birthday and ended up leaving so upset. We ordered a saganaki which came to our table extremely hard (frozen like) typically this type of cheese is supposed to melt. So we told the server. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come and check on us and our food was getting cold. Finally someone came and said they would replace the saganaki and then proceed to warm up the pita that got cold. As the waiters walked away the proceeded to talk bad about myself and my partner for complaining. At this point we were worried that our new food would be tampered with. Instead of returning with fresh pita. The waiter came back with the sane soggy reheated pita from before. The overall quality of the food was terrible compared to the various greek restaurants we have visited in danforth. We decided to ask for the food to go bc we were extremely disgusted by the service. The staff were very dry and rude. So upset that we paid for terrible service and food which we never ended yup eating and overall ruined my partners birthday and left me in tears.
